Holistic Dentistry
Holistic Dentistry is a philosophy that recognizes that the teeth and associated structures are a part of the whole body.

Safe Mercury Amalgam Filling Removal Protocols
As your Oral Health Doctor, Dr. Baumann is aware that mercury vapor and dental infections can have an effect on overall health. Because of this concern we are a mercury free practice, we focus on patient education and strive to remove mercury amalgam, silver, fillings in a safe way.   For information about why it's important to use a mercury safe dentist, Click Here.

To accomplish this, we utilize safe & proven removal protocols based on recommendations of the International Association of Mercury Safe Dentists (IAMSD), the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) and other prominent biological and holistic dental organizations.

A Personal Note from Dr. Tom

I consider Dr. Baumann to be a dedicated, well trained, experienced and caring holistic dentist. I am impressed with the depth of his knowledge and understanding about the critically important relationship of oral to overall health and his ongoing effort to educate his patients. He also utilizes this knowledge when designing the treatment of his patients.

His concern for his patients health, his ongoing training in cosmetic (particularly at the highly respected LVI), and traditional dentistry; along with his commitment to safely remove amalgam fillings makes him ideally suited to remove and replace them. I am especially impressed with his dedication to Patient Education as it is such an important part of oral and overall health. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a caring holistic and mercury free dentist.

Dr. Baumann is also a Charter Member of the International Association of Mercury-Safe Dentists (IAMSD). I suggest you visit to his website to learn more about him and his approach to dentistry. When you visit his office please tell him where you found out about him and say hello to him for me. Thanks!
